I recently saw the Kony 2012 video and I saw a nice effect that takes the whole use of 2D images to create a 3D effect. I think I know how it was done, but I don't know if anyone here has a definite technique for this. The effect I'm talking about is at 11 mins and 22 seconds into the video: Click the short url to go directly to the effect http://goo.gl/DZDlw or click on the YouTube video and scroll to 11:22.
